— Annika Sorenstam won the short iron competition in the ADT Skills Challenge on Monday in her first professional competition in three years.

Sorenstam and teammate Morgan Pressel earned $161,000 for finishing fourth in the four-team event won by Zach Johnson and Madison native Jerry Kelly. Sorenstam and Pressel became the first female team to participate in the Challenge.


Im very competitive so its great to come out in this atmosphere again, said Sorenstam, who had her two children and parents at the event.


Were going to be more up close and personal with the players, which I love.


Sorenstam, who won a record 90 international titles, was playing in her first professional competition since the 2008 season-ending ADT Championships. In 2004, Sorenstam became the first woman to compete in the ADT Skills Challenge, finishing sixth.
